Hi Jaymac,

I am a past pupil of Girl's Model School but started in Sep 1970 (a little bit later than the years you are looking for) but my older sister attended during that time and maybe might be interested.  I will speak to her later and get back to you.

Just out of interest the new school building should be open for business early in the new year.

regards

Hi Jaymac,
My sister was there during the years you are searching for.  She remembers Miss Craig, Miss Ferris, Miss White, Mrs Reid, Miss Sands and others very well.  Some of them were still there in my time!!

Her name was Marilyn English, ring any bells?  Do you want to tell me your name and I will let her know, maybe get her onto the Forum herself.   She is still in touch with some of her old (whoops!) should I say her 'good' friends from the Model.

Keep in touch.

My friends, Annie Bickerstaff, Sally Louden, Barbara Niblock,Sandra Nicoletti went to the Girls Model.They would have been there in the late 50's and early 60's.

Hey DAS,

I might know your sister, I left in June 1976, and I know people tell you your school days are the best days of your life, well I loved the Model, and was sorry to leave.

We still keep an interest in the school, the new buildings look brilliant!

I started the Model in 1977....Miss Sands, Miss White and Miss Ferris were still there in my time. I also loved being at school.

I was in the school with my daughter this morning collecting her AS results.  It still looks the same as when I went there. 

I saw Miss Sands and Miss Thompson last year and they don't look any older!!  hope I last as well!!
